Premium With a Purpose: Acura the 2017 Top-rated Luxury Brand for 5-Year Cost of Ownership Says Kelley Blue Book
Feb 8, 2017
TORRANCE, Calif. – For the second year in a row, Acura has earned the 5-Year Cost to Own Luxury Brand award presented by Kelley Blue Book (https://www.kbb.com/new-cars/5-year-cost-to-own-awards/). The honor highlights vehicles with the lowest projected ownership costs, based on Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own data for new cars in the initial five-year ownership period.
The Acura lineup placed first or second in more than half of the seven total 5-Year Cost to Own factors, which include the upfront cost of the vehicle, depreciation, finance and insurance fees, expected fuel costs, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees.
“This award demonstrates, once again, that the exceptional quality and reliability of Acura products lead the luxury segment,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of Acura.
